Celebrating the past, present, and future of cancer care in Waterloo and Wellington regions: Team members and patients mark 20 years at Grand River Regional Cancer Centre open house

Grand River Hospital celebrated 20 years of providing cancer care close to home in our communities at the Grand River Cancer Centre Open House, November 4. Team members, volunteers, survivors, and patients and their families from across Waterloo and Wellington regions gathered at the Grand River Regional Cancer Centre, to celebrate a significant milestone in its commitment to providing exceptional cancer care services. Since its inception two decades ago, the Cancer Centre and the team who provide life-saving care everyday have been a beacon of hope, compassion, and innovation for cancer patients and their families across Waterloo and Wellington regions.

The Grand River Regional Cancer Centre officially welcomed its first patient  in the fall of 2003. The facility at Grand River Hospital’s KW Campus brought radiation therapy services, along with a wide range of enhanced cancer treatment services, to our communities.  In the 20 years since, the cancer program has remained dedicated to delivering world-class cancer care, consistently setting new benchmarks in treatment, research, and patient support.
